Senior Software Engineer - SEO

We believe that “through sports we have the power to change lives,” and we’re doing it every single day. adidas is one of the largest direct-to-consumer ecommerce companies in the world, and we happily take on the challenge of delighting billions of visitors.


As individuals: we’re confident and creative. As a team: we’re collaborative and greater than the sum of our parts. We deeply value diversity and inclusion because we cherish each of our teammates and the breadth of perspectives they bring to the table. “Digital is a team sport,” and it takes the entire team to create the online store for the best sports brand in the world.


Our Consumer Engagement team is looking for an experienced Software Engineer who is familiar with SEO, has some experience leading and coaching more junior team members and wishes to continue in this path.



What will I do?

  • Write code to increase visibility and traffic to adidas and Reebok online stores used around the world
  • Script automated tests, just as important as the previous point
  • Attend and sometimes lead Scrum ceremonies, including daily standups, refinements, retrospectives and demos
  • Collaborate closely with product owners and solution architects to increase both quality and quantity of traffic to our sites from search engines
  • Mentor and coach more junior colleagues 
  • Lead a team of developers (give feedback, assess performance, enable growth, hire new team members)
  • Maintain existing code by fixing bugs and refactoring problem areas
  • Adopt team-wide coding standards and establish best practices
  • Invest time in personal growth and development by using online resources and receiving coaching from senior engineers
  • Release software efficiently to production multiple times per day


What’s the tech stack like?

We use very modern technologies and methodologies to prioritize developer experience and productivity while enabling us to produce fantastic results for our consumers. And we’re always open to new ideas and improvements.


We write our applications in TypeScript using open-source tools like React, Redux and Node.js. And we ensure the quality of our code meets our demanding standards by performing automated testing with Jest, Cypress and Selenium.


Finally, all of our wonderful code is compiled and packaged up into Docker images by Jenkins CI/CD pipelines and deployed to our high availability Kubernetes clusters.


From us, you will get

  • Full-time (39h/week) contract (we always start with 12 months)
  • Choice between MacBook Pro and Windows laptops
  • Mobile smartphone
  • Flexibility to partially work from home (when restrictions are lifted)
  • 28 days of paid holidays
  • Pension plan
  • Online and offline education resources, like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning
  • On-site gym
  • Employee discount on adidas and Reebok
  • Collective insurance discount
  • Commuter benefits
  • Discounted lunch at the office
  • Stock purchase plan 
  • Bike purchase plan


Is this job for me?

Are you excited about the latest technologies? How about applying them at global scales?

Are you genuinely passionate about producing high-quality, consumer-facing applications and proud to share your hard work with family and friends?

Come be a part of our team of hands-on engineers who believe in testing and automating everything. We’re constantly learning, ever growing and always eager to do things better.


What if I don’t check all the boxes?

It’s ok if some of the technology or terminology mentioned here are new for you. 


At adidas, we’re keen to increase our team’s diversity of backgrounds and skills, and we’re more interested in the work you will produce than that work you’ve already produced in the past. If you’d love to work with us, then we’d love to hear from you.

adidas celebrates diversity, supports inclusiveness and encourages individual expression in our workplace. We do not tolerate the harassment or discrimination toward any of our applicants or employees. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
